Monday morning update on son #4’s surgery.
Day of surgery;
We had to be at the hospital at 6AM this morning, and of course got
to bed late, and of course we didn’t sleep any, so of course we’re
pooped already. We talked to both surgeons this morning and the
anesthesiologist who assured us that everything would be fine. The
plastic surgeon said that they would take bone from the thickest
part of the skull, split it, and replace the bone on the left side of his
head where the old bone is dying. We’ve heard anything from “A
couple of hours” to 5 hours. So, we’ll just hang out here in the
waiting room and see what happens. We had some priesthood
blessings last night and (at least I) feel a bit more peaceful about
the whole situation.
I’ll keep you updated when we find something out.
